From the Introduction:
The Sword of the Red Phoenix. The Flamewright Hammer. The Nightfall Cloak. The Boots of
Nythrial. These powerful Artifacts were all cra!ed by the Master Smiths of the Forge, and now a!er
many trials, much training, and years of apprenticeship you’ve joined their number. You can only hope
that you will be worthy to place your works among the treasures of the Citadel, to be held in its wellguarded
vault until a Heroine shall come and prove their need to the Masters.
This is a game for 2-4 players plus a GM. Each of the players represents a Master Smith of the Citadel
of the Forge, responsible for cra!ing wondrous objects and endowing them upon the supplicant Heroines
who require them to fulfill their quests and fight the evils that plague the kingdom.
